The '''Revised Version, Standard American Edition''' of the Bible, more commonly known as the '''American Standard Version''' ('''ASV'''), is a Bible translation into English that was completed in 1901, with the publication of the revision of the Old Testament; the revised New Testament had been released in 1900. It was originally best known by its full name, but soon came to have other names, such as the '''American Revised Version''', the '''American Standard Revision''', the '''American Standard Revised Bible''', and the '''American Standard Edition'''. By the time its copyright was renewed in 1929, it had come to be known by its present name, the American Standard Version. Because of its prominence in seminaries, it was in America sometimes simply called the "Standard Bible".
